Potomac Heights Elementary Celebrates Color Day During Character Counts Week

Hagerstown, Md. (Oct. 23, 2013) - Potomac Heights Elementary School is celebrating Character Counts week. Today was "Color Day." Kindergarten students wore red for caring, first grade students wore green for responsibility, second grade students wore orange for fairness. third grade students wore yellow for respect, fourth grade wore blue for trustworthiness and fifth grade students wore purple for citizenship. The school has been working with the students this year to make the connection between these positive character traits and their success as students, and their future success in college, jobs, families and communities. The students lined up outside in "color" order today to signify the pillars of Character Counts. Character Counts week continues as a "spirit" week to remind the students to use good character throughout the school year, both in and out of school.
